1. Younger perspective

2. When part of a course so supervised

Student talent is the most precious gift. Not only are you creating an opportunity for a young person to begin their career. You remain relevant by hearing their views and more importantly, they surprise you at every turn as they gain confidence and deliver work product that is beyond your expectations. Their learning curve is steep and if they're in the right role, it moves at a cracking pace. I've employed graduates as young as 18. Each takes something new from their opportunity. The most valuable lessons are the interpersonal ones. The introvert overcomes their resistance to engaging with people of all ages. The extrovert, learns humility. The curious gains access to a breadth of experience and the sensitive applies their sixth sense to engaging with customers. There's nothing they can't do, given the time and space.
